condition and is unable to speak. we continue to learn more about tsarnaev's brother, tamerlan, who died in friday's shootout. last year, he created a youtube channel with links to videos by chechnyan radicals like this one seen here. then earlier today here in boston, worshippers at new england's largest catholic church gathered to remember those killed at the boston marathon and its violent aftermath. four large photos of the victims were prominently displayed behind four lit candles. at last check, 54 of the bombing victims are still in the hospital. let's get the very latest on the bombing investigation now. we have new details about the materials used to build those bombs and some fresh information about the tsarnaev family that is very high interest, very high interest to police this evening. i want to bring in cnn's brian todd in copley square. brian, you're a few yards from where the bombs exploded. that's attracting a lot of attention and foot traffic right now. we were told earlier dzhokhar tsarnaev might be formally charged today. that's not the case. so when is it? >> reporte
was known about the older suspect who is now dead, tamerlan tsarnaev, and this trip ta hat he took to rusa last year. law makes want to know why is it that tamerlan tsarnaev was able to make this trip in the first place. should he have been stopped before he went overseas? when overseas what did he do? what was he up to when he was over there? some of this is stemming from some of the conflicting stories, quite frankly, chris, from federal officials over tamerlan tsarnaev's status. senator lindsey graham, republican from south carolina, told reporters yesterday that tamerlan was on a no-fly list, that he was on some sort of terror watch list a federal law enforcement official has told cnn that is not the case. and senator charles grassley, graham's republican colleague in the senate, asked secretary janet napolitano from the department of homeland security about the discrepancy earlier this morning. here's bit of that exchange. >> was your department aware of his travels to russia, and if you weren't, the reason? >> the travel in 2012 that you're referring to? yes, the system pinged when h

man is his brother, 26-year-old tamerlan tsarnaev. he's the older brother. he is now dead, killed in a wild overnight police shootout. these two brothers said to be from a russian region near chechnya and believed to have been in the u.s. for quite some time. in the hours since the fbi first made the images public, we also received this chilling photo. look at this. can you see it? we've sort of blocked -- we've blocked the faces. it's actually not that user friendly now that we've blocked the faces, but it appears to show one of the suspects standing behind the 8-year-old little boy, little martin richard, who was murdered at that marathon at the second location. this is the second bombing on monday. you can see the backpack on the bottom, you can see the suspect in the back, and you can see the 8-year-old in the full screen picture that settle original of what we're showing you here. >> that suspect, disok dzhokhar tsarnaev, his uncle was pronouncing his name differently in the i in media. suspect number two in the white hat seen a few feet away from the 8-year-old victim. just
